Frank Lloyd Wright first visited Bear Run in 1934 to gather inspiration for what would become his masterpiece of organic architecture. During this two-day workshop, explore Fallingwater and its site with a Wright-eye-view. Use photography to capture Wright’s sources of inspiration in the landscape and the house itself. Explore historic, vernacular architecture of Southwestern Pennsylvania, including our 1850’s log cabin, historic barns and farmhouses, located on Fallingwater’s campus, as further context for the cultural landscape that inspired Wright’s innovative design.

Learn the best shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings for exterior and interior spaces. Join a small group of photographers and benefit from an intimate group size with direct instruction and feedback from Pielage while learning ways to improve your photographs. Enjoy full photographic access to Fallingwater and its site in early morning and evening hours. Workshop includes a special night photography session (weather permitting).

This workshop includes a special event, Sacred Spaces: Dinner and Artist Talk, in celebration of Pielage’s solo exhibition, on view at Fallingwater.

Andrew Pielage

Andrew Pielage has photographed 108 Frank Lloyd Wright sites around the country and has been published in newspapers, magazines and websites from CNN to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s quarterly magazine.

Born to an adventurous mother and a geologist father, his childhood was spent exploring the dusty backroads of the American Southwest. This constant desert travel rooted his artistic soul in landscape photography.

In his hometown, Pielage discovered the beautiful relationship of landscape and design in the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright inspired his passion for this relationship and his mission to photograph all of Wright’s remaining designs. With over 20 years of experience, including international ad campaigns and publications, television features, exhibitions and workshops, Pielage continues to do what he loves: capture the soul of his subjects and inspire imagination through photography and education.
